Crowdsourcing is a technique that’s being used more and more by large companies to make decisions.

If it’s good enough for them, it should be good enough for you.

Before you make your NCAA Tournament bracket picks, take a look at the data we’ve gathered from every individual who has filled out a bracket on CBSSports.com.

According to the people, Villanova is the most popular pick to win the NCAA Tournament, but Kansas is the most common choice to make it to the Final Four.

The percentage listed in the table is the chance that a team has to win that round’s game -- so, for example, 99.5 percent of people are picking Villanova to win its first round game, while 0.6 percent think Texas Southern will pull off the upset in its first round game against North Carolina.

One interesting piece of data is that 70.5 percent of people think that No. 10 Wichita State will upset No. 7 Dayton in the first round -- by far the most popular first-round upset.

Gonzaga is the No. 1 seed that people have the least faith in, with only 8.1 percent picking the Bulldogs to win the title. See all the picks as of Tuesday morning below.
